Within the next few days, we should be at a point where it's time to make
the move from the Wiki into Docbook+SVN. When we do, we'll need a host
for the textbook.
We've already got a SVN server set up at TOS.org. Currently, the only
repo is this one:
For this repo, we'll be putting a username and password in the book
itself -- because it's essentially a scratch space, and we don't mind if
students screw it all up. We can revert to previous versions if need be;
that's kinda the point.
For the book itself, however, we want to be a bit more cicumspect.
Chris, would it be possible in the next few days to set up another repo,
with access restricted to a set author list? Like maybe:
Educational materials should be high-quality, collaborative, and free.
